Awesome, Congrats! Can't wait to see what you guys do with it! When should we expect to see you guys racing the GTR?

Nice! Good luck Brian. Didn't realize you and Chris were at the last redline event but hopefully see you at the next one!

We will hopefully have it done this summer for the rest of the west coast Redline events except for Willow Springs. We are not rushing the build. You do not tear apart a $80k car and "settle" for anything on the build just to get it out on track.

You guys can keep up with the progress on our build thread at NAGTROC.com...

That is an excellent project. I will be very interested to see how much weight you guys can take out of that thing. Good luck!

A small update on the build thread...

http://www.nagtroc.org/forums/index....pic=29989&st=0

Just so everyone does think we are complete turn coats, we raced the good old Legacy in NASA TT this weekend . Felt good to be out in that car again, until the left front brake line burst going into turn 14 at T-Hill at 120mph .

Yeah the car is coming along, cage is about 85% complete. Afte the cage is done I have air jack fabrication and seat bracket fabrication and that is it for the big stuff. Then we can paint the inside and start putting this thing back together!

Very cool to see R35's being built for Time Attack! I wouldn't be surprised to see upwards of 5-6 of them competing at our Auto Club Speedway event come the end of the year. They are fantastic cars and everyone loves to see them being used for what they were designed for. Pure Sex on Wheels!

We expect the weight to be somewhere around 3100 wet. We plan on doing a lot more work to get that down, but the first priority is to just get the thing on the track.

I like how you guys are keeping the drivetrain stock while sorting through chassis/suspension. too many people try to do everything at once and greatly increases the reliability risk.

do you anticipate having to do any suspension geometry changes? can you cut away sections of the chassis reinforcements that are unneeded since you have a cage?

Yeah I always want to get as much out of the chassis as possible before throwing a bunch of HP at it. Considering that this car is heading the 25 hours of Thunderhill possibly, we need to get lot of speed without running high boost.

The only way we will know about the chassis rigidity is to get it on track. I have taken my best calculated guess, but we won't know for sure until it is running. One thing is for sure, I would rather leave in 50 lbs of metal in than deal with bad chassis oscolations that can completely kill a cars setup.

Yup those are JRZ triples with remote reservoirs, and fancy quick release fittings for the front for easy removal.

Very close to finishing the cage. Maybe another day for the door bars and another day for the air jacks and all heavy fab will be done!

I have the rear air jacks done as well but have not posted the pics yet. I will do that tonight. They came out really well. Slow and steady on the progress, it should be ready for paint on the inside by next weekend.
